Sydney, Stacy, Ricky/Ella, Kelly and families.

I knew the day was coming, but a shock just the same. Her love of music was her passion. I am proud to have called her my friend, not just a friend but a precious friend. You have a long road ahead of you, when your loss is raw but Donna's suffering is over and the memories are abundant. Talk about her often, keep her memory alive to her grandchildren. My condolence to all her family. She was one of a kind. I will miss you, Donna. R.I.P.
